  • A Journey to the Interior of the Earth – Jules Verne – c1905

    A Journey to the Interior of the Earth – Jules Verne – c1905

    Jule Verne classic published by Ward Lock, London, early 20th century, likely pre-WWI. Part of the “Lilley series” – with catalogue at rear indication forty volumes available and another ten in preparation which appears circa 1905. Octavo, 256 pages.

    Lovely pictorial image pasted to front board, with “framing” decoration, which is repeated on the spine. The aforesaid image is repeated as a frontispiece. Some foxing to title and page edges. Generally, given the excellent covers, still a good to better copy for its age.

    Often Journey to the “Centre” here the ”Interior” but we still come out in Iceland, where else? Another slightly unusual translation which adds to the fun.

    A Journey to the Interior of the Earth – Jules Verne

    Jule Verne classic published by Ward Lock, London, published 1967. Octavo, 192 pages.

    Our favourite, more modern edition with the super dust jacket. Illustrated internally with line drawings. Very good condition.

    Often Journey to the “Centre” here the ”Interior” but we still come out in Iceland, where else?. Translates for the young in mind, the style of translation as usual, unusual and leads to a bit adult amusement.

  • Tarka the Otter – Henry Williamson – 1929 Edition

    Tarka the Otter – Henry Williamson – 1929 Edition

    The full title of the book is “Tarka the Otter: His Joyful Water-Life and Death in the Country of the Two Rivers”

    First published in 1927, early editions are very valuable. This is sixth edition or ninth impression of September 1929. Rarely found in its dust jacket. The fourth edition onwards included a few revisions following the suggestions of T.E.L. – see more later.

    Published by Putnam’s London, the original publisher. Octavo, 255 pages, with some age but still very good.

    A highly influential novel and Williamson’s best known work. Won the Hawthornden Prize in 1928. Describes the life of ab otter who lived in the countryside around the River Taw and River Torridge in North Devon. Tarka means “Wandering Stream”.

    Putnam had sent a review copy to T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia) who had responded with a typically thorough, no punches held, response. Putnam sent this on to Williamson who, despite the criticisms, established a friendship with Lawrence [see our copy of Threnos for T.E. Lawrence by Williamson].

    Tarka is a really super book and is up there with the best of British novels that draw on the rural environment.

    Sought after Tarka down by the Two Rivers.
